It's a one-man band effort, wherein Dr. Presencer plays the titular singing bowls, various horns and flutes, some cymbals and gongs, and a human femur. He also sings a little, but more as a sound effect than as a song. Perhaps you've seen the glass harmonica, an instrument consisting of water glasses filled with different amounts of water and played by running a finger around the rims to ring them. Tibet's singing bowls work on the same principle, except that they're metal bowls instead of glasses

Actually this album is by the French-Candian Alain Presencer who has lived in Britain for many years. It was originally recorded in 1981 and features a rather small selection of Tibetan singing bowls, various horns, and Alain's vocal exploits. The quality of the recording is good and some of the singing bowl pieces feature a combination of bowls of good quality. But the pieces featuring vocals and horns awaken incredulity as to their authenticity. For instance, the piece 'Bon-po chant' sounds more like a Jewish funeral song and absolutely nothing like a real Bon-po chant

His ologist father Alain was interested in many types of music - he trained as an opera singer as well as selling over a quarter of a million copies of the album Singing Bowls of Tibet - but it was an item from his 4,000-strong jazz record collection, featuring Roy Eldridge playing a characteristically flamboyant solo on a Jazz At The Philharmonic. live date, that resulted in his son’s determination to become a trumpeter.
